Big Kevin helped me switch out some headlight assemblies today. Got to bond with Grammy over quitting smoking. Talking about how much we loved/hated smoking was funny, specifically swapping “You ever do this?” stories with a woman who quit because of my birth was bizarre.

EDIT: That’s grease on his face, not a unibrow.

Bellwether

I posted something on Facebook last night about how I was doing a show in Auburn even though I knew B.J. Novak was in town and I (jokingly) probably should have known better than to book it, but I decided it came off too boo-hoo and deleted it, and then he popped in at our show, which filled out once we actually got started. My college roommate was there and got to meet Novak after having watched his show at the school earlier.

Bellwether Variety Show is fun. The show moved from the big room in the back of Hound, which is now a coffee shop, to a side room that’s near perfect. I hate I didn’t take a picture of it, because it’s a good example of converting a room you might have underestimated. It’s a shallow, wide room, with a small stage and everybody in close. There are windows along the back, but the spotlight’s bright enough you can’t see past it, anyway. Got to see some 2010, first-year-of-comedy-in-Alabama buds I haven’t seen in forever. Solid Tuesday.

Cool comedy things.

Atlanta’s great because we’ll have Eddie Pepitone showing up to our mics until the 17th, while he’s in town doing stuff for Adult Swim.

Saturday, I did two shows with Eddie and Cameron Esposito at the Laughing Skull Lounge, and then I watched the two of them at the 1 a.m. at Smith’s Olde Bar. kellycomedy74 and dueordie had good sets and were solid green room hang buds at those skull shows.

cameronesposito is very improvisational and commits to ideas in a way I envy. It’s a self-confidence that I evenly have and lack.

"I will be funny about whatever idea I present."

That’s a neat thing to watch somebody confidently find a way to pay off, and consistently. I got riff-ey at a show Sunday, likely because of her and that Todd Barry crowd work documentary. Did new stuff. Every time I do it I feel that tension and remember that’s the best part, especially if it pays off. 

Eddie did Star Bar tonight. Amazing to watch him run with a rough intro and have control of a room in about three seconds, just an immediate “we should listen” vibe from the audience. 

Fun weekend. Auburn tomorrow night.

Cool thing about not knowing anything is you get to have “new” ideas before realizing that’s what sensible people already do. (My car has me running laps around it replacing headlight/taillight bulbs every month, “Hey, why don’t I replace them all at once? Buy myself some time?” Yea, if you’d’ve called your dad earlier he would’ve told you this in the first ten seconds.)

Koch Brothers Looking to Build an Improv Troupe

Last night was thought to be the 10th anniversary of the Star Bar Comedy Show, but original owner Jim Stacy was present and corrected Rotknee, that it was actually year 11. Stacy had a god mic, “just like old times,” and interrupted comics during our sets. Fun nightmare to deal with. I moved to Atlanta two years ago today, April 1, and I don’t feel like writing a big thing about how special it is, so that must mean it’s home now. But I do love it.

UPDATED: Google begged Steve Jobs for permission to hire engineers for its new Paris office. Guess what happened next...

Never got making a hero out of Steve Jobs. Seeing how people bent over backwards and messed with people’s lives to accommodate this control freak is baffling.
